I’ve been rather MIA here this week. Life tends to do that. I did some more work on the wood walls we’re putting up in our living room. Painting. Painting. I work on it in bits and pieces. Our house projects can get stretched out with both of us working full time. I had the day off from work on Friday and spent it catching up on errands. I started on my 1940s apron. Everything is cut out. I made a lot of double fold bias binding and am in the process of attaching it.
The reason I’m here at the moment is to fess up to my recent fabric indiscretions.
Can you tell I like fun prints? I am so drawn to fabric with a vintage or a retro vibe. I keep getting them here and there but don’t have a particular use in mind yet. This purchase arrived last Saturday from Fort Worth Fabric Studio. Jodie has such a great selection of fabric. I had to really control myself because I don’t need any fabric. Need. The prints above came from the following collections and manufacturers.
- Briar Rose from Windham Fabrics
- April Showers from Moda
- Retro Racers from Robert Kaufman
- The next two with the chairs are Perfectly Perched from Robert Kaufman
- Kiss the Cook from Robert Kaufman
These are a couple 1930s repro fat quarters I bought from an Instagram destash. Always 1930s. For sure.
